Cleopatra's Daughter By Michelle Moran

Excerpt from the book flap:

The fateful tale of Selene and Alexander is brought brilliantly to life in Cleopatra's Daughter. Recounted in Selene's youthful and engaging voice, it introduces a compelling cast of historical characters. Octavia, the emperor Octavian's kind and compassionate sister, abandoned by Marc Antony for Cleopatra; Livia, Oxtavian's bitter and jealous wife; Marcellus, Octavians's handsome, flirtatious nephew and heir apparent; Tiberius, Livia's sardonic son and Marcellus's great rival for power; and Juba, Octavian's watchful aide, whose honored postiton at court has far reaching effects on the lives of the young Egyptian royals.

Selene must find a path around the dangers of a foreign land. Her accounts of life in Rome are filled with historical detaisl that vividly capture both the glories and horrors of the times. She dines with the empire's most illustrious poets and politicians, witnesses the creation of the Pantheon. Navigates the crowded marketplaces of the city where Roman style justice is meted out with merciless authority. In these chaotic streets and whispering palaces. Selene confronts the same forces that destroyed her mother and struggles to meet a different fate.

Good Luck!!
